Roasted Bone Marrow

during the languid months of Winter
i’m my least social
except for that first year
i met dw
for some reason
there was always something planned –
an out of town trip
a girls’ weekend
guests in town
you name it, i had it going on
and so,
dw kept my interest
with his daily emails:
thought provoking
speckled with $5words
that made me swoon
i could cry when i
think back to that time
when i was already enamored with
someone i hadn’t yet met

by nature, i am a realist
by heart, i am a romantic

it was 3 weeks
before we finally met
it was a slow start,
but i can still taste
how delicious
the anticipation was

Roasted Bone Marrow

roasted bone marrow
*note: you can bake at 350F for 20 minutes, or broil for 8-9minutes

4 bone marrow, we purchased from whole foods, i can’t recall the weight
olive oil, optional

place the marrow in oven safe dish
in a mortar & pestle, grind the salt/pepper with rosemary, amounts at your discretion and according to taste
season over marrow

broil for 8-9 minutes. the goal is to soften the marrow, but not liquefy it.

to serve: i made rosemary dutch oven bread earlier in the day. spread the marrow goodness on sliced bread, enjoy!

i meant to grab the green tomato & mint chutney, which would’ve cut through the richness but i forgot!

  1. Bone marrow eh? I have never had it and although I’m a semi-adventurous eater, it skeeves me a little! But alas….maybe I should just give it a whirl. It doesn’t seem too hard to whip up, after all.

    1. i would recommend that you try it from a reputable/professional restaurant. that way the time spent sourcing the bone marrow and preparing it is not wasted. i admit that it’s an acquired taste, i didn’t care for it as a kid but now i love it.
